launched its OnePlus 10T earlier this month. While the smartphone received praise for its competitive pricing and the latest flagship chipset, a new video of the OnePlus 10T has shown that its durability is also not exactly at the top of the class.

JerryRigEverything, the YouTuber who regularly posts durability test videos of almost all the popular smartphones, has posted a video of the 10T going through his classic scratch, flame, and bend test. Like most smartphones, the OnePlus 10T passed the scratch and flame test without any issues.

The bend test, however, revealed that the phone had some issues. While the 10T didn’t suffer any damage when bent with the thumbs on its back, but when bent with the thumbs on its screen, it cracked, bent, and snapped into two parts.

Interestingly, OnePlus’ previous flagship, the 10 Pro, also cracked at the same point — just below the rear camera module and above the battery. While Jerry says that the 10T is much tougher to bend compared to the 10 Pro, the smartphone still snaps into two halves. This suggests that might have to re-do the internal layout to improve durability or use a tougher material to construct the smartphone.

Although it’s generally not advisable to put such stress on any phone, it’s still surprising to see a phone break in half with just your hands — especially since smartphones like the Pixel 6, Galaxy S22, and even cheaper ones like the Nothing Phone 1 performed better in bend tests.
